In Shanksville, Preserving the Memory of Flight 93 and 9/11

Shanksville, Pa. — When the plane crashed in the empty field north of town, the schools let out early. Katlin Rodriguez, 11 at the time, waited in a cafeteria full of crying and shocked classmates for her mother and stepfather to come and take her home. When they showed up, they had brought along a family friend.

Official Patriot Park Opening Press Release

As interest grows in the efforts of the Patriot Park Foundation, Foundation members are inviting the media to share information about a series of notable events over the next month. Engaged in a successful fundraising campaign, Patriot Park is located just west of the Flight 93 National Memorial entrance along  U.S. Rt 30.

About The Park

Patriot Park is a project beginning to take shape in Somerset County, Pennsylvania within the boundary of Flight 93 National Memorial.

The battle that raged onboard United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, prevented what would have been another awful tragedy on an already tragic day. In fact, the passengers onboard Flight 93 can be referred to as, “the first combatants’ in what came to be known as the “Global War on Terror”. Since that infamous day, millions of Americans have bravely served in the military and over 7000 brave men and women have lost their lives in the Nation’s efforts to eradicate terrorism. Thousands more have suffered severe and debilitating injuries. Patriot Park has been conceived as a place where our gratitude can be expressed. The Field of Heroes Flag display contains one flag for each service man or woman who has died in the line of duty since 9-11. Over 7,000.
